Question about Toshiba Computers & Internet
Hi I have a problem with my toshiba 500gb USB portable HDD. It was working great on Win7 64bit pro for 12 months. Then it just stopped working. Can see it in device manager, but not in windows explorer or in powerdesk. When I open Computer Management and go to disk management, it comes up with a message to initialize the disk. Choosing either MBR or GPT has the same result - The media is write protected. It is not listed in the top section of disk management, Right clicking on it only gives properties or help. In properties, under Volume it lists: Disk: Disk 1 Type: Unknown Status: Not Initialized Partition Style: Not Applicable Capacity: 476940 MB Unallocated Space: 0 MB Reserved Space: 0MB I have also tried it with my dell laptop running Win7 32bit home with the same result. what should i do? I really want to recover the data on it and would prefer not to reformat it until then.

Does you drive make any sounds like these? If yes you have a mechanical problem and you should get a specialist to work on it. If not - try to remove the drive from USB casing and connect it directly to your PC or put into another USB enclosure. This should help if the problem is with the enclosure itself and not with the drive.
